For what its worth, the installer who came to fix my dish yesterday voluntered that Bangor locals are supposed to be added to the dish in early 2007, as Adelphia had the local rights all to themselves with a 20 year committment, but because they were sold to Time Warner, this opened up the contract to all companies with the locals effective 1/1/07.

Now this might be half right, because Dish just added the locals I believe on 12/1/06, so maybe their is hope afterall. On the flip side, the local Sattellite dealer told me DT@ doesn't have any available space on the existing satellites to add any more locals until the new satellites go online sometime in '07.

Does anybody have any further info to pass along? Just curious if I should invest in an OTA in the interim.

A Dish/Directv retailer told me this past week to expect them in Jan '07 but then again he mentioned Dish promised Bangor locals in July and got them in November...
